Bold sounds to fill Yungaburra park

THE bold sounds of a great band will resound through Bruce Jones Park at Yungaburra this Sunday, 14 April, when Bold as Brass 2 performs a free concert at the rotunda.

The band was one of the most popular bands on the Tablelands for many years and were formerly known as Bold as Brass. They originated in the 80s, when cabarets and formal balls were regular community events to look forward to. 

The original members from 1989-2022 were John Godfrey (keys and brass), Des Godfrey (bass), Ian Poggioli (drums and vocals), Col Robinson (guitar and vocals), and Werner Braun (trumpet).

These musicians all came with previous experience in other bands and wanted to back up their music and vocals with a heavy brass sound, where the trumpet featured in an instrumental arrangement.

In 2020, they invited Chris Bourke to join the band as a female vocalist, with previous experience in Smith & Co, a popular Tableland duo in the 80s and 90s.

Joe Paronella, who is well known from his regular, appearances with wife Wendy as The Paronellas, also recently joined Bold as Brass 2. 

To be held at the Rotunda in Bruce Jones Park from 4pm-6pm, the whole family will enjoy this performance.

Bring along your chair and umbrella, some drinks and nibbles and enjoy an afternoon of music

Parking is available via Short Street and, if it’s wet, the event will move to the Yungaburra Hotel.

This is a family friendly free event (you can donate directly to the band if you wish).  

All are welcome to attend.
